‘Goes a Long Way’ Beef Skirt Goulash

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Goulash was one of my mom’s regular dinners when I was growing up, and I loved it. The addition of dumplings is my own twist.

Mojito

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

People panic a little bit about the measurements for cocktails, but it really is a case of making them to taste and remembering simple rules like one part alcohol to three part mixer for each person. Then just add the flavours! Get your hands on some fresh summer mint for these babies – it's one of the easiest herbs to grow, so just pick up a plant in the garden centre and pop it in a pot for fresh mint all summer long!

Chilli and Tomato Crab Pasta

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

I love taking one ingredient and really making it the star of the dish. In this recipe, crab hits the big time! Paired with the heat of chilli and the freshness of lemon juice and zest, it makes a pretty incredible pasta dish. You can buy crab meat quite easily nowadays and for a speedy supper it does save you the hassle of buying a crab, cooking it and then tearing out its insides. Hey, I'm all for shortcuts if you can take them!

Chorizo, Chicken Bean Stew

From: Kitchen Hero: HomeCooked

Chorizo adds a wonderful warmth and subtle heat to this great chicken stew. I use plum tomatoes here as they have a much better flavour than chopped tomatoes.

Boxty Colcannon Pancakes

From: Kitchen Hero: Great Food for Less

Boxty potato pancakes are a traditionally Irish recipe and they come with a great little rhyme that we were taught when growing up: ‘Boxty on the griddle, boxty on the pan, if you can’t bake boxty, sure you’ll never get a man.’ The traditional recipe varies from region to region, but they all use grated raw potato. This is the version that my family makes and they are great with a full Irish breakfast, or I also serve them with pan-fried mackerel and a light salad.
